YOU GONNA LOVE Budapest
First off is the neo-Gothic Hungarian Parliament Building. Looming over the Danube as the largest building in Hungary and the largest Parliament in Europe it is hard to miss. It was from here on the balcony facing Lajos Kossuth Square that Mátyás Szűrös declared the Hungarian Republic in 1989.
Inside, visitors can see hundreds of statues of illustrious figures from the nation’s past, including the Holy Crown of Hungary proudly on display in the central hall. Nearby lies another sacred site for Hungarians, the Basilica of St Stephen, the founder of the country, whose incorruptible right hand remains mummified in the basilica’s reliquary.
Nightlife in Budapest is just as mixed as the city’s architecture. There are no limits on opening hours, meaning nights can go on long into the night or even just carry on straight through to the next day. You can always refresh yourself in one of the many specialty coffees and our internationally famous thermal spas, like the Széchenyi, after.
